Hello Stampers. Carrying on the current Monthly Challenge theme of Lucky Numbers, here is a card for you. I've also used lots of tissue tape, which is on special offer at The Artistic Stamperwebsite HERE.
To begin, I spritzed a square piece of white card with Crafty Notions Kingfisherliscious colour spray. Next, using a Sissix Elegant Flourish die-cut as a mask, I spritzed over the top with some diluted vintage photo reinker. I stamped the quote from The Open Road Stamp sheet all over the background, using coffee archival ink. I laid the inked flourish aside, to use as an embellishment.
I stamped the cycling ad from The Open Road stamp sheet onto card, using coffee archival ink, then coloured it with broken china distress ink, then cut it out. Then I used black archival ink to stamp a couple of the tickets from the stamp sheet, one onto a ticket die-cut, & one onto some Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine paper. I stamped & cut out the words 'out and about', then used walnut stain distress ink to add colour to these pieces.
I covered a couple of random 'lucky' grungeboard numbers with tissue tape, & inked the edges with walnut stain DI.
To put my card together, I stuck some torn tissue tape to my background, added a metal corner to the top left, then glued the image, tickets, words & numbers in place. I added the flourish to the bottom right, then stapled a small piece of film strip ribbon to it, using a tiny attacher. I attached a philosophy tag to the top right, using a long fastener, then glued my artwork to a square card blank.
Thanks for looking! xx
